See you in 2022!

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS
2021 RECIPIENTS

After the challenges and concerns that the industry has had to face over the past 18 months, we brought our network together at the Lifetime Achievement Award Dinner to recognize the resilience that our industry has been able to show during such times of hardship, as well as to celebrate the successes of those who have been able to make truly accretive additions to their portfolios and emerge stronger on the other side.

Congratulations to the 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients, John Sellers & Cody Campbell, Co-CEOs of Double Eagle. They have had a remarkable journey and we could run through their career highlights (to date), but we thought that the tribute video captures the story far better.

Thank you to all of our table hosts for joining us for a memorable evening. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!
